For my work, I need evolution and evolution-exchange; I can’t use imap.
However, the version with Suse 11.0 constantly crashes.
When I used Suse 10.3, and earlier Suse 9.3, I had no trouble with
their bundled versions of evolution.
How can I easily install an older version of evolution into Suse 11.0?
I tried compiling evolution 2.12.0 from source, but it told me I needed
gnome-doc-utils >= 0.3.2, and both zypper and apt-get refused to get me
a high enough version.
So I’m a bit stuck. Any advice would be most welcome!
Unfortunately yes, imap has been dropped. And it won’t be reinstated.
Mail can -only- be received and sent using an exchange client. This
means that Thunderbird, Kmail etc are all out. My options, as far as I
know, are evolution, or MS Web Access. I’ve been using web access ever
since doing my installation of Suse 11.0, and it works, but is so
lacking in features as to be very annoying. If you’re using, say
Firefox, Opera, or Konqueror, then MS web access gives you only a
“basic” interface, which has no search facility, and lacks much else.
To get the “premium” interface you need Internet Explorer.
